Maradona saw the match and received an ovation

Diego Maradona (C) watches the Group F football match between Argentina and Iran.

Argentine football icon Diego Armando Maradona was able to enter today the Mineirao arena in Belo Horizonte to watch Argentina beat Iran, after having been denied access to see the Albiceleste opener against Bosnia in Río de Janeiro last Sunday.

Diego watched Messi and co together with his daughter Giannina – former wife of national team attacker Sergio Aguero, who didn’t play a good game.

At 10 minutes of the first half, the stadium camera spotted Diego and fans started to chant the classic “Maradoooooo, Maradoooooo” from every stand.

Then, as a tease towards Brazilians, Argentine fans compared Diego with local Pelé, saying the former Boca is better than the Brazilian star: “Brasilero, brasilero, que amargado se te ve, Maradona es mas grande, es mas grande que Pelé” [Brazilian, Brazilian, you look so bitter, Maradona is greater, he is greater than Pelé].
